Ask China to end dog and cat meat trade horrors including the Yulin festival

I always want to do my part to help those without voices. Animals are a huge love of mine, and I am compelled to share this email that I received from The Humane Society including a link to a petition that we all can sign to help end the slaughter of of cats and dogs.  They are our pets, best friends, and family, not food!

The following is the email from The Humane Society:

The annual dog meat “festival” in Yulin is scheduled for June 21st and animals need your voice as part of the effort to bring cruelty like this to an end.

After being snatched from the street, the journey to the country's slaughterhouses is horrendous for these animals. They are crammed on top of each other and transported in trucks for days without food or water in the unforgiving heat. Those who survive will wait until it’s their turn to be pulled violently out of their cage by the neck with iron tongs and beaten to death for someone’s meal.

The world has applauded the cities of Shenzhen and Zhuhai for being the first in mainland China to ban the consumption of dog and cat meat and welcomed the Chinese government’s confirmation that dogs are companions not livestock. However, millions of stolen pets and stray dogs in China continue to suffer terrible abuse for this trade and are killed in horrific ways.

The brutality of the dog and cat meat trades tarnishes China’s global image and reputation, and opinion polls show that most people in Yulin and across China don’t eat dogs and cats. Large public gatherings for the Yulin festival also runs contrary to public health and safety in the wake of COVID-19. We implore China to end dog and cat meat trade horrors like the annual Yulin festival.

Please ask Guangxi Party Secretary Lu Xinshe to end the slaughter in Yulin.
